Conker's Bad Fur Day
Donkey Kong 64
FIFA 98: Road to World Cup
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine
International Superstar Soccer '98
International Superstar Soccer 2000
Jet Force Gemini
Ken Griffey Jr.'s Slugfest
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Mickey's Speedway USA
Perfect Dark
Pokémon Stadium 2
Resident Evil 2
South Park: Chef's Luv Shack
World Cup 98

Note: This only shows N64 games that have Dolby Surround, some games might have surround sound but didn't pay for the Dolby license.
several of those games don't have Dolby Surround at all and as i said, its a Stereo Pseudo surround. a DPL mixer will also not work as it not a Pro Logic signal.

Pro logic will only output 5.1 if the source is encoded in the PL format. so when set to PL it will only output as stereo.

Prologic 2 is the same as PL1, in that it will only provide proper 5.1 mixing when the audio signal is encoded to DPLII. However it will simulate a 5.1 environment by using advanced mixing. However since as i said, the N64 is only capable of Pseudo surround, It is only a upmixed stereo feed and will not have any positional or environmental audio effects.
